Disconnect the printer from the power and from the computer..
press & hold the power button on the printer when unplugged from the power to release the static power of the printer..
connect the printer directly to a wall jack and power it on..

Good Luck !!

When I turn on the printer the light paper flashes


The paper light flashing because there is some paper inside the printer. Open the front cover and remove the cartridge and look inside for the jammed paper. Remove the jammed paper and insert the cartridge , closed the front cover and switch on the printer.
It will help you to solve the problem.

Hi I have a Brother NFC-88404 Printer/fax and went to print off some address labels but it will not do so and yellow light flashing and says "check paper mp and insert paper". there is paper in the tray...


which tray is paper in? the MP tray is the manual bypass tray in front of machine. sounds like your software is setup to utilize the MP tray for the labels, which is the best thing to do.

Brother MFC-8840D printer w/false paper jam indication.


With my Brother 8840D I have had paper jams that when cleared would not delete from the display nor would the machine operate until I unplugged the machine for around eight hours. I guess it is a sort of reset or reboot.

Hi - I have a Brother HL5250DN with the paper light flashing but there is paper in the tray and now it wont print - can you help??


Is the Status light also red? This could mean other things than being out of paper. It could be a paper jam (most commonly anyway). Get a flashlight out and inspect it for jams.
